Although we will never truly understand why these things happen, I know for sure that sweet Emily is resting easy in absolute paradise, just as beautiful as she was. Lord have mercy on this beautiful child's soul and may she continue to live in our hearts and memories for the rest of our years. We miss you so deeply Emily, and I know you're a guardian angel to your family and friends who are missing you more than ever. Rest in peace, gone but never forgotten. Ever.

To the Fedorko family: I am so very sorry for your loss. Emily was the most beautiful and kindhearted person that I have ever known, and she will be deeply missed forever. Not a single day goes by without Emily on my mind, for she is always in my thoughts and prayers. A year later, and I still cannot comprehend the tragic loss of such an amazing girl. I remember walking by Emily's math class in the high school and always waving hello to her. She had the brightest smile that I will never forget.

Dear family of Emily, you know me not but I just wanted to share the message that you will be in my prayers. I lost my wife 4 months ago, Penny was 49. I know the pain but please be strong now. As I am told of my wife: Emily would have wanted you to be strong. Some days that reminder is what gets me out of bed...

For no one has the pain lifted and I remain mourning this tragedy months later. My heart breaks daily for her loved ones and I wish life would give us a reason for its malevolence. We must wander on searching for this reason with a chain of pain wrapped around us, never failing to be felt. I am so deeply sorry.

Emily, we thank you for your gifts and contributions to our world and beyond.
We are all droplets that contribute to a mighty river of bonding leading into the sea of humanity. Great daughter in spirit, sleep not forever, but inspire from beyond. For just as a might ship may challenge our vision and go beyond the horizon, it's energy and beauty are still very much a part of the universal picture.
